Basic details
self portrayal englishI am an Ethiopian-German Female Artist who had the privilege of viewing the world & diverse societies from multiple perspectives, having gained work experience in Europe, Africa, North America and Asia. Within my art I aim to combine past experiences from both a minority and majority perspective mostly concerning social justice, racial reconciliation and empowerment of the disadvantaged & bring it to the surface and mirror it back to society.
As a human being and artist I am interested in creating a safe space, empower females and minority narratives, since they haven’t been voiced enough.
